The Laowa 10mm f/2.8 Zero-D is a good lens at an attractive price.
The R6 II advantages over the R5:
The R5 advantages over the R6 II:
The higher resolution imaging sensor is the R5's primary advantage from my perspective, and this camera remains my first choice. If 24.2 MP is acceptable for your needs, the R6 II is likely your best choice.
As always, let me know if I missed a differentiator.
While these results appear normal for a 24 MP imaging sensor (compared to the a9 II), normal is remarkable in light of the global shutter upgrade. Here are more comparisons:
The Sony Alpha 9 III is here, and it is time to set up this camera. This powerhouse of a camera may seem daunting to set up, but the process is not burdensome and not unlike other recent high-end Sony Alpha cameras. The following steps prepare a factory-initialized a9 III for use.
I make additional menu and other setting changes based on current shooting scenarios, but this list covers my initial camera setup process.
To copy this configuration means you intend to shoot as I do, including in RAW-only format. While this setup works optimally for me, you should adjust the camera to your needs.
If you can't remember your menu setup parameters, keeping an up-to-date list such as this one is a great idea. Anytime the camera is set to the factory state, such as when serviced or when acquiring an additional camera, the list will ensure all settings are quickly re-established. Better still, save the camera settings to a memory card (Setup > 2: Reset/Save Settings menu: Save/Load Settings: Save) for an easy restore or replication. The setup file can be copied to a computer drive for long-term storage.
Hundreds of hours, thousands of manual changes, and hundreds of thousands of programmatic updates bring the site to the latest design iteration.
Go to the Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM Lens review for a look at what has changed.
I promised to add sample images to this review. You will find them in the focal length range discussion.
Also, four 800mm f/9 100% crops showing distant bird feather detail are now available in the image quality discussion. Remember that browsers may auto enlarge images on high resolution displays, reducing the sharpness appearance.
Head over to the just updated RF 24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z review to see the background blur difference between 105mm f/2.8 and f/4 created using the f/2.8 lens. View both the full-size reduced and 100% crop image comparisons.
The answer is yes.

Note that the review still needs sample photos added. Wildlife has been uncooperative, but I didn't want to hold back the rest of the review for that matter.

This lens is another high-performing member of the Canon L-series.
Here are some comparisons to get you started:
Note that 1485mm is the longest focal length I have enough working distance and a small enough chart to test. Thus, the 2x results were captured a bit short of the lens's capability.
I'll share the wide-open aperture comparisons. Consider also comparing the lenses at the shared widest aperture.
